It is logical to assume that when people use the word “crises” they referring to a big problem. Since 2010, unauthorized immigration has been dropping drastically, and only about 38% of the unauthorized immigrants entered the country illegally and not all come over the Southern border.
Of course, the size of a problem is a matter of perception. Right now, the U.S. government is partially shut down because the Resident President has convinced some people that “there is a crisis on our southern border.” He and a band of dilatory Senators are holding the country hostage so that the taxpayers will fund “the Great Wall of Arizona.”
Most people are against the idea, but a significant number support it. Who are the supporters, who are against it?
Pew Research helps us find the answer to the question.
Well more than half, 58%, don’t think the wall is a good idea while 40% do (about the same number who perpetually think that T*mp is doing a good job.).
Not only are the majority of people opposed to the wall, but those that are opposed are also far less likely to change their position. 88% say that it is unacceptable to pass a budget with money for the wall, while 72% of the people that want the wall find it unacceptable to pass a budget without money for the wall. That means that more than half would find a budget that funds a wall unacceptable, but just over a quarter wouldn’t go along with passing a budget that doesn’t fund the wall.
You are less likely to want the wall if you are younger; better educated; not-white; doing OK financially. People who are the most in favor of the wall are usually in places where it will have almost no impact.
